It’s been awhile since I made this visit, but it’s still worth sharing, in my opinion. I took a couple of days off from work and after lunch with the lady, I hit a couple card shops on the way home. I posted before about my stop at SMP Cards and also posted a pack breaks piece on a few packs I picked up. On my way back home, I went ahead and made a stop at the most local (to me) of the card shops in the area, Duane’s Sportscards.
I had been encouraged to stop in some day when I had time to go through some boxes. Typically, I stop in quickly after work and can’t spend too long in the shop. This day was different though. While I didn’t spend much money, I ended up with a few PC cards and some for other things.
This was the most expensive card that I bought, for a whopping $2. I don’t often buy basketball cards, but when I do, it’s likely a former Mountaineer. I couldn’t pass on a “White Lightning” rookie card in his WVU uniform!
I picked these two up for a dollar total. The reason – I’m putting together a little Stars PC for the lady. When she followed the Stars (before she knew me), Hatcher was her favorite player. I can’t stand the cheap shot artist, but sometimes we make sacrifices for the women we love.
The rest were all in boxes I didn’t even know were under a table. He told me that he’d sell me anything in there for a dime, so I knew that I was going to find a few cards. I ended up with more than I thought, though.
That last picture is of 42 Guy Lafleur cards, though it doesn’t look like it. I didn’t spread them out well. Some of these I picked up with the intention of trading, so I will probably just throw them into my dime or quarter boxes for shows. It’s not really worth the time and trouble to try and do much else with them. Hopefully I can find them a good home.
